************************************************** *********
Lahore, March 03: In a shocking incident, pointing to the precipitous situation in Pakistan, the Sri Lankan cricket team which is in Lahore to play the second Test was attacked upon by a gang of gunmen early on Tuesday.

There were media reports that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had confirmed that two Sri Lankan players have been injured and have been taken to the hospital. The Sri Lankan cricket board has cancelled the tour with immediate effect while the encounter with the unidentified gunmen is still going on.

As per initial reports the attack happened outside the Gaddafi stadium when the team was moving from the Liberty chowk to the Polo Ground road on their way to the Gaddafi Stadium.

Then all of a sudden two grenades were lobbed on the convoy, followed by indiscriminate firing. Three policemen have lost their lives while two others are reportedly injured.

Dear Friend,
Its because all the Sri Lankan Stars are in my favorite book, thatís why I love them. Specially Mahela Jayawardney, Kumara Sangakara, Mutiah Muralitharan, Chaminda Vaas, if Pakistan loss a match with other nations I serious feeling about it, but when Pakistan loss a match with Sri Lanka then I feel nothing. Its because that Pakistan and Sri Lanka both has strong relationship and good working relationship. Thatís why Ö

Ok, budy nice to hear. but i thought you have been SL before & you find your other half here.

I think sunny also meant that kind of a thing. but can't understand his language.

03-03-2009, 12:02 PM
i feel so sorry for srilankans cricketers.... i m so worried for them... we shud all pay for them.... and i believe these r foreign agencies involve in this attack....

03-03-2009, 12:12 PM
offcourse these are foreigners who wants to create obstacles for pakistan...

03-03-2009, 12:15 PM
Yes... there may be a big idea behind this issue. in this situation we all must think as Asians.
O/wise some other will stand behind & try to crew our backs.

There are so many, many things we have to be think about on this.

Dear Friend,
oh no sir g ... sunny is talking about that "love has no reason"

03-03-2009, 12:31 PM
sathika i m totally agree wid u..... we shud stand against those hidden powers..... we need to be united....

03-03-2009, 12:31 PM
Thats true dear, suny is correct. we always need to love people with out a reason.

03-03-2009, 11:18 PM
i m extremely sad abt this all mishap.......... its too much.... and every1 knows who did it....

03-04-2009, 06:11 PM
who did it? i have been following the news lately... and i saw this unfortunate thing happen to them.. who is behind it.. i heard its Al Queda

03-04-2009, 09:37 PM
Every one knows who did it and there is not a single report and reason that Al-Qaeda has anything to do with it - they openly take responsibility what they do ....

its quite obvious who was trying to stop or presurize srilankan authorities and team not to visit pakistan - glimpses showns on Tv are quite similar of mumbai attacks and an open message to pakistan.

RAW is behind these filthy and coward acts happening accross pakistan, Indian government and RAW spends million of dollars on poor and illetrate people for terrorism and suicide attacks in pakistan.

03-05-2009, 08:40 AM
investigations are going on and soon there will be some final report which will shared with srilanka first and then opened to the public.

during investigations , 3 important persons were arrested just after the attacks.

03-05-2009, 10:00 AM
yea... every1 is saying what Baaghi said.... well news channel has shown documents saying "India is unhappy with Srilankan team's tour to Pakistan"....... and it was all pre-planned.... but poeple who says its Al-Qaida.... i will say that they shud open their eyes now.... b4 its too late....

03-05-2009, 10:33 AM
well i disagree that India has a hand in it... if it is similar to mumbai attacks, then its obviously pakistanis na.. Kasab is a pakistani right?

03-05-2009, 11:01 AM
well u have right to disagree... but no1 can change reality.... since we r not sure yet.... but even india wasnt sure abt mumbai attacks but it kept saying that hes pakistani... so........nothing...

03-05-2009, 11:33 AM
well, kasab himself confessed he is a pakistani... and they have proofs too

03-05-2009, 11:37 AM
well nothing final can be said about these attacks.

but alqaeda. they dont do such meaning less things , they attack on clear targets and they accept it after that.

03-05-2009, 11:40 AM
i think there is nothing like meaningful either.. why do they have to attack at all?? they dont have the right to kill ppl do they?

ok, these attackers are not al queda.. but why is there terrorism at all?

don't blame other countries for it, blame the attackers.. whoever they are..

03-05-2009, 11:42 AM
The full stop must be needed for these kind of works

03-05-2009, 11:44 AM

03-05-2009, 11:47 AM
even investigations on mumbai attacks are not final yet , Pak govt. is waiting for the answers of questions asked by Pak agencies. and still there is no response from indian side.

long ago, I saw a press conference. in which sheikh rasheed was there , an indian journalist asked that "i have a book , it is publish in Pak on following date and from following press , it claims that Pak is training terrorists"

sheikh rasheed replied , "How many books do u want from me , published in indian press in back dates, i can provide u as much as u will ask"

similarly , if in individual is claiming something in india , it is meaningless , it requires more , Pak Govt. can also presenet indians , who will confess that they were here for terrorism or they were involved in blasts.

but it is meaningless. investigations should be positive. we should avoid blame game.

03-05-2009, 11:48 AM
we shud keep quiet here coz every1 knows whos is behind it.... our discussions/ arguments r of no use.... 2day its very easy to proof anything... everything is possible 2day.... so instead of hurting each others feeling here.... we shud be quiet.... therez alot lot things what we all want to say.........

03-05-2009, 03:14 PM
well, kasab himself confessed he is a pakistani... and they have proofs too

Muffy... Pick ur top indian officer and hand it over to pakistani police ... they will make him confess whatever they want ... as far as proofs are concerned its not difficult for spy agencies like ISI,CIA,RAW etc to create fabricated proofs ...

Its quite evident that RAW with the help of Israel is trying to de-stabilize pakistan in every possible way it can ... insurgency in Balochistan, terrorist and suicide attacks in pakitani cities and tribal areas are one of the questions Pakistan has asked India in reply to its Mumbai attacks investigation report .... let see what india has to say ....

I agree with what u said blame attackers only not the country ... so India Government and Media (Not Peoples) are the one, should be blamed for creating hype and tension as they start blaming pakistan without sparing the single moment and without any proof.

03-05-2009, 05:52 PM
Yeah right.. thanks for the info...

03-05-2009, 09:29 PM
how could u say that kasab's statment his own ............

03-05-2009, 11:27 PM
yea i told u it isnt a big deal to proof anything 2day.... so it means we r ignorant enough to believe these so-called proofs....

03-05-2009, 11:28 PM
i m agree to Baaghi... this game has been playing sice 1947......

03-06-2009, 09:56 AM
That's it Zara... you contradicted your own statement.. if we should not just blindly believe in whatever is showed on TV, then why do you believe in that? you give a statement, and then yourself say that we should keep quiet about it.. no body made a bold statement here.. only you did..

sweety there is nothing against you, its just that it hurts to see terrorism being generalized under a country or a religion. which should not happen..

That is the only thing i request from the Nido-ites not to play a blame game on other countries or religions.

Hope you understand and agree..

03-06-2009, 11:07 AM
i agree wid u... but muffy u know what whenever i saw any indian channel they r always talking alot lot abt pakista... even i cant use these words here..... but as i say we shud not believe in Tv reports... again i will say here i havent seen any material against india on our media... u can check it urself.... thats y i said indian media is not showing what is reality... whenever there is something wrong, indian gov ban everything like litrature, chanels etc from pakistan.... but its not same here in pakistan.... so u can decide what we shud believe or not... so i just want to say i have never seen any material agaisnt india on any paki news channel... so whenever they say something it might be true.... on the other hand if indian chanel always keep talking negative abt pak then whoz gonna believe it.... whenever i saw "aajtk".... it hurt me alot... coz they r saying anything they want.... they say pakistan is a terrorists factory... bla bla bla.... and have u ever noticed who introduced this word.... have u ever heard this word in ur childhood... hey itns nothin but everything is pre-planned by govs.... and we all know... just leave it yaar.... i just want to say whatever is true.... and nothing else....

03-06-2009, 01:50 PM
See i understand why you have to say that... i don't trust everything shown on media. It's just that when ppl make comments directly it hurts.. and i don't want anyone to hurt each others feelings at least in this forum..

03-06-2009, 02:30 PM
cool down people. chilll :)
